This product is great. I have use it for the past 7 years, with a lawn that slopes. Only issue I found if any is, it has to be reapplied in south NC. I apply once about 3rd week of Feb. and again when I remember in April. If not lawn look great until the effects I guess wears off. Then watch out for late May, June, and July. I will be picking crab grass by hand. When I live in OH, MI and IL I only need to apply this pre-emergent once usally end of March early April.

                    This is a standard product for me. A must have every year. If I get to my lawn early in the spring, the weeds are majorly reduced and need far less attention the rest of the season.

                      Comments about ACE HARDWARE Scotts Halts Crabgrass Preventer:

                      Weeds use to come up in the spring time after the winter freeze. In N. Florida, with now even warmer winters, not only do the bugs reappear as early as February, but so do the weeds. Clover lives year round, but seed based weeds from grasses like Crabgrass will come back much earlier during the past 10 years. I have used HALTS for 20 years in both the north and the south, and it really really helps to keep those summer weeds from growing. I applied it earlier than ever this year since I believe we will have a wet and warm winter. It always works, does not interfere with my St Augustine Grass, and is a proven product. If you wait too long, the weed seeds will germinate...and then it is too late. Use HALTS now if you are a Florida resident, and you can avoid using a lot of weed killer later next year.

                          Used Halts w Turfbuilder on 4/20 and again on 6/5 and got more crabgrass than last year in the regular places. I should think the supplement on 6/5 should have stopped the July crabgrass?

                              We created a lawn care plan on Scotts and it recommended this product for our first treatment (centipede sod planted in 2009). Started working within a week. Great product and does what it says. Helped get our yard off to a good start. Highly recommended. We also recommend getting a lawn care plan.

                                First time I applied this product. Before I used to pull the crab grass manually until I got tired of that and decided to give a try on this product. The results were amazing I did not get any crab grass in my lawn. I always try to keep my back yard nice for my kids to practice soccer and Scotts products have done such an excellent job.

                                  I live in Atlanta with Bermuda grass. I downloaded the new app (my lawn). I applied the Halts Crabgrass on 2/19/17 when I started noticing some crabgrass and weeds starting to grow. This product seem to feed the crabgrass and weeds after a week, resulting into larger weeds now. I followed all the directions that were listed on the bag and app. I just had to go buy Weed b gone spray to kill everything growing to hopefully slow it down. Not sure if this is better to use in the late fall or what but applying it now in the early early stages of spring didn't work for me.

                                      Applied Scotts Crabgrass & Grassy weed Preventer in the fall and early spring. it stops the weeds and crabgrass from germinating in the spring so you can feed your lawn and not the weeds I have a lot of trouble spots in my yard of Centipede grass and have to reseed often. ( Armadillo tear it pretty bad ) I applied scotts all in one Centipede ,mulch, starter fertilizer, and grass seed. its doing very well.

                                                  Despite fall and spring applications as recommend I had significant new grassy weeds in my Bermuda grass lawn before the lawn began to vigorously grow. Also, I could only find 5,000 sq. ft. bags for my 50,000 sq. ft. of lawn requiring excessive cost investment for mediocre results.

                                                    Don't bother using this product. You are better off spending it on weed and feed and seed. Seed bare spots and fertilize so that good healthy turf chokes out the crabgrass and other weeds that the crabgrass preemergent claims to halt. I wave used thid product for two years with no noticable decrease in the few crabgrass clumps that I have

                                                      Crabgrass is the first WORD on the product. However; it comes in last on performance. I have used all the products that concern crab grass. At best a minimal effect on crabgrass but does seem to kill and prevent henbit and other cold weather emergent weeks. To give this product a better review it would need to act faster. I have to admit CRABGRASS is near impossible to deal with. So I also, spot kill individual mature CG with Pure Vinegar. I still recommend it. I use a scotts drop spreader which gives me the precise amount to use. Cut your yard as short as possible if heavily infested, then spread it early morning when DEW has formed or the night before. This seems to activate on the small leaf stems and absorbe the Halts. AAA+++ no ODOR. Be safe with Kids walking recently treated areas without shoes.

                                                                        September.

It takes a year or two to reign in crabgrass by people who know what they're doing. Don't expect the usual "I pay my taxes, I expect this stuff to entertain me!" people to help you.

                                                                        Apply for the first time in fall if you like. But crabgrass goes to seed in the spring! Fall is when the grasses are already full bloom! So a crabgrass KILLER is what you really need.

                                                                        In Michigan, apply Halts just after the Forsythia, but before the Lilac. Apply it again mid summer or so. And use a crabgrass killer to clean up before fall comes. Lay some Halts down before winter comes if you like, but most of it will just rain or drain away. Treat again in sprint. By the 2nd summer you'll be getting the results some people were crying about not having after two WEEKS!!

My yard is full of Poa Annua this late winter. I am sorely disappointed. On careful scrutiny of your website under Poa Annua control I see a different recommendation of application in August or early September. Why was this information not supplied with the product label?! BTW, lots of your products have conflicting timing recommendations- Not very helpful to customers! Your lawn recommendations are very confusing and at times conflict with other areas of your website- again, not helpful.

He said don't use the weed & feed as your second treatment, but use it 6-8 weeks after the second treatment of Halts. Now this recommendation may only be applicable in the Virginia area as that is where he does research. So far it is working - not one sign of crabgrass yet this year. I have used this product for many years and like it very much. Now that we know the trade secret, it may be even more effective and I will like it even more! Highly recommended.

                                                                                                I've been using Scott's Halts for 12 years on my N. Florida lawn, where we have a year-round growing season. It is a constant battle to fight off the weeds from my neighbors weed-choked yards. This product is excellent on crab grass as I only occasionally find any in the yard, which is over an acre. It helps somewhat with winter weeds, which are a huge problem; henbit, in particular. I also spray broadleaf winter weeds, especially oxalis, so this granular product is not the only product in my arsenal, but it is essential. My lawn is a mix of Emerald Zoysia and centipede. The Zoysia can typically withstand liquid broadleaf herbicide, but centipede can't take the strength needed to have any effect on the weeds. I do not want, and will not buy, a weed & feed as I use organic matter to fertilize my lawn. Additionally, you should not be fertilizing and putting down herbicide at the same time. This is a marketing tool for people trying to save time, but the optimal application timing for each are not the same. Both Home Depot and Lowes have stopped carrying this product over the years, and I am lucky to still be able to buy online. I have a feeling, though, that Scotts will stop selling Halts at some point, and will only offer it through its weed & feed products. I don't know what I will do at that time, but it is going to be a big problem.

                                                                                                    Love it. Really helps control the crabgrass. I usually do 2 applications. One in late fall helps prevent a lot of early spring (late winter) odd grasses and weeds.
